And just like that … Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Whether you’re into a date night dinner with a loved one, a dressed-up-night-in with takeout or a Galentine’s Day boozy brunch with the girls, a bright, statement-making handbag is a must-have for any occasion. Try a color-blocked tote big enough to carry your BYOB bottle of bubbly, or opt for a miniature purse to take only the essentials, such as your fave lip gloss for a mid-meal touchup, coin purse or an extra hair tie. For a more casual vibe, clip on a fanny pack or cute wristlet. Add a touch of glamour with a sequin-encrusted cocktail bag or velvet clutch, and finish the look with a flirty frock and oversize coat. Our roundup of handbags is sure to sweep Cupid off his feet.
